I was offered 2 convicts. A pink male and a black female. I gave in and took them. Now I have read about the dangers they can bring so *** been thinking about keeping just one. Is this acceptable, meaning will the single convict be happy with a bunch of african cichlids? So far they along fine except for when the oink convict decides to chase one of the africans but that last for 2-3 seconds the most. The female is really peaceful but does defend herself when needed, however she has been taking beatings from the male pink and a lot of times she gets away but hes faster than her so she gets beat most of the times he gets aggressive with her. What should I do? Keep one or give them both away. I was leaning towards keeping the female. I have a 55g with about 6 africans with them.
